SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - There are many festive events happening here locally, especially ones that are made for the entire family.
Santa usually arrives on a sled, but on Saturday, November 9, he and two elves are using a different form of travel. He and the elves will parachute from a plane and land on the roof of the Edgewater Mall at 10 a.m. The public is invited to watch. The best viewing area is at the mall's west parking lot, which is in front of the West entrance. This will kick off the mall's pictures with Santa, which is six weekends before Christmas.
